if you look at mccain, imagine calling that man at 4:00 in the morning and asking him anything. seriously! ehh? who is this? click. >> get off my lawn. >> mr. president mr. president are you awake? we have an emergency. troops -- there is a nuclear submarine. >> i can't hear you. my goiter got in the way. >> hal: then mitt romney, if you take that picture of him pumping gas on the way to disneyland as a sign of how he handles stress -- >> oh, boy! >> he turns into a hobo. >> hal: hobo producers activate. form of a confused staggering man on the train. let's actually -- this is interesting, too. because while the inauguration was going -- let's go to sean in chicago. sean in chicago is aware of what the republicans were doing. >> oh, that's right. go ahead sean. >> caller: hey, guys. hey, everybody. >> good morning. >> caller: i love you guys. you start my morning before work every day. >> we try. >> caller: i was piggybacking off what you said, hal. how we're not paying attention. we're paying so much attention to what the president's doing. the republicans in the states are really just r
delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, app
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir
mccain? >> mr. chairman, i'm pleased to be here with secretary warren and secretary clinton to introduce and speak, say a few words about my friend, senator kerry to the committee. obviously the nominee doesn't need to be introduced to the committee on which he has served for over a quarter of a century and as its chairman for the last four years, i can dispens of the nominee record. >> we're going to jump away. when john kerry gives his introductory remarks to the committee, we'll go back. we're going to take a quick break. we'll be back with much more. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

didn't have all of those details republican senator john mccain today at this senate hearing was blistering in terms of these questions. take a listen. what was the president's activities during that seven hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. >> now, one other question that is still remains after these hearings today is whether or not the white house can claim that al qaeda has been disseminated when clearly the terrorist group is still launching attacks in northern africa and elsewhere. the secretary answered that by saying we have taken out the core leadership like usama bin laden. can you kill the leader and their affiliates just seem to keep growing, shep? >> shepard: ed henry at the white house. thanks. it looks like the u.s. government will indeed be able to keep paying the bills at least for a few more months. the house of representatives today voted to raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. se
to salter with the mccain campaign in 2008. and i said, why did you guys go the path you did? mark salter? i said, why don't you go ahead and push a bill where somebody worked here for five years. they could go back to mexico. they could apply. and they could come and have legal status. why didn't you go that route? americans would have supported that. he laughed. he said, because the afl-cio opposed it. and the one senator that was constantly at the forefront of opposing that form of immigration reform was a senator from illinois named barack obama. he carried their water on blocking this pathway to citizenship when he was in the senate. the afl-cio put out a press release yesterday talking about the importance of not compromising on citizenship. so the unions themselves -- there are a lot of cross-currents here. the unions themselves don't want an influx of new workers in america, do they? >> no, they don't. that's one of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we'
did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what changed you ask. two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important but not urgent like climate change fall down the scale. the second change, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but bear with me, we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, might it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissions, co2?
as there is also opposition. remember, some senators, like senator mccain, think this is the right thing to do. i'm told in talking to officials here that president obama believes this is the right thing to do. a number of his advisers believe this is the right thing to do. this is not something that's going to be implemented overnight, of course. there's going to be a lot of thought put into what women are serving in what positions, but this is something that president obama believed certainly in consultation with his defense team was the way to move forward. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you, kristin. >>> next, why some on president obama's team had second thoughts on using this. stay with us. ♪ america, america god shed his grace on thee ♪ [ construction sounds ] ♪ [ watch ticking ] [ engine revs ] come in. ♪ got the coffee. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] ♪ this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may h
, it almost never moves back and that was a problem for the mccains and even the romneys of this world. however -- when you're the vp, you get one shot to extend. you are defined by the guy above you. so, you get to ride on the previous generation. >> he gets younger. >> he's the youngest guy in this town, too. >> benjamin button. >> i talked to a veteran democratic actrist strategist who has been involved and she told me within 48 hours she got a call from both joe biden and martin omool o'malley about whe you in 2016. dick cheney was not going to run, we knew he was not going to run. you saw his influence in the second bush term go on decline. joe biden is saying he is prepared to run to keep his influence or is he running? >> i think it's hard to know that. i think people forget how important it is in this town, the personal relationships. people talked often enough that obama sometimes can be a and we will appreciate over the next two years in particular what a good retail politician this man is. i don't think anything gets done in this administration without joe biden either in fr
beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s
-- the mccain one -- [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: the merckly one is the good one. >> caller: yeah, we can't get anything done on guns or creating jobs on saving medicare, we don't have a chance to do that unless we make it harder for republicans to block the votes. >> stephanie: right. >> this is the biggest story of president obama's history to this point -- >> stephanie: that's right. >> caller: he is the senator from oregon and i want everybody to call their senator and tell them to vote yes to the merckly amendment. at least this would make it harder -- it would force them to talk. it wouldn't be silent and it would get more attention to maybe the media would actually be forced to tell people what is going on. >> stephanie: yes. and by the way a number of unions announced opposal to the amendment. the president yesterday. >> obama: hunters and sportsmen, if responsible gun owners if americans of every background stand up and say enough. we have suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will -- change will
seated and was watching john mccain in particular, and the lines he applauded for, the lines he did not, you can look at that as portending what is possible on capitol hill. he applauded on a lot of the lines of the deficit and the mention of newtown and other issues, but notably on immigration reform, he just sort of sat there while other members did applaud. whether or not you can read something into that, i am not sure, but it is definitely an opportunity for reaction on the other side. host: to all of these issues we have been addressing the last hour, i want to look at something your colleague wrote in "the washington post." "if the president can reach a broad deal that settles some of the disputes over entitlement spending and tax code and govgiving the government borrowing authority to last through much of the term, he can use that energy to forge a bipartisan, rise on these other big issues to." guest: that is a huge point. one point that ms. mcconnell, republican leader in the senate, has made over and over again is the reason they are using to get them as leverage is they feel
, senator john mccain, ranking member of the armed services committee, joins a bipartisan group of senators suggesting changes in dealing with the syrian civil war. >> coming up on "washington journal," the freshman democrat from nevada will discuss his first war priorities and issues before the congress, including spending, immigration, and gun control. he is all about congressman lee terry, republican from nebraska. he will be here to talk about the decision by a state governor to approve the rerouting of the keystone pipeline through his state and the potential economic impact. that is like 7:00 a.m. eastern every day on c-span. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> former imf chief economist said tuesday that the debt ceiling debate and debt and deficit talks should be separate. mr. johnson testified before the house and the ways and means committee on a panel that included the former staff director of the senate budget committee. this is two hours, 10 minutes. >> in the audience, take a seat. we are e
at what a tremendous crowd this is. it just happens to not be as large as the one last time out. john mccain there wearing his shades. and then who is that, orrin hatch in the cowboy hat there? >> i can't quite tell. >> it's either orrin hatch or the lone ranger. >> you know, some of you may be curious about the flags that are hanging on the front of the u.s. capitol. but before we talk about that, here they are, malia and sasha, the president's daughters. malia now 14 years old and about as tall as the first lady, and sasha now 11 years old. that's their grandmother walking behind them, the first lady's mother, marian robinson. let's listen as they're announced. >> a little bit of a walk from where they were being held in the capitol out to the west front of the u.s. capitol. >> but as they go through that door, scott, it is truly the most spectacular sight in all of washington, because the mall opens up right in front of you. you can see all the way down to the lincoln memorial, even past the washington monument. you can see it all there. ronald reagan was the one who decided that they oug
've got some congressional numbers. congress, as john mccain likes to say, when congress is at 14% approval rating, they're down to close relatives and paid staff. >> i want to find the 14%. >> friends and family, that's all. >> 81% disapprove. and then on the republican party, 49% have a negative view of the republican party. just 26% positive. that's their highest negative number since back in 2008, the year president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see
. was that the only time they spoke? >> again, i don't know. i'm not sure -- >> senator mccain was asking about the president's role. >> made a huge issue out of what i made clear our view is a nonissue which are the talking points that were provided to senators, members of the house and to members of the administration. the nonclassified talking points. which have no bearing on what happened in benghazi and the immediate reaction of this administration. in response to it. as secretary clinton made clear today in her testimony or at least her initial round of testimony, and as was made clear in the accountability review board report, there was no delay in response, every asset was brought to bear to try to provide assistance. no requests were denied. a lot of the reporting around this has proven to be wrong. and -- or the speculation around it has proven to be wrong. on the fundamental issues here about what happened, who was responsible, the response and reaction to it and now the investigations that have taken place in our -- and are continuing at the president's direction. so, you know, the
